Make a donation

Help us answer more calls and provide suicide prevention and crisis support services to all Australians by making a donation today.



By volunteering for Lifeline not only will you be making a difference to the lives of other Australians who use the Lifeline services, but you’ll also be enriching your own life.

It takes a lot of dedicated people to provide Lifeline's telephone crisis support services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, across Australia. Lifeline Canberra relies on support from the community to answer the crisis support line, raise funds and run the iconic Bookfair events.


Online Bookstore

Lifeline Canberra earns a major part of its funding by selling thousands of donated items at our three Bookfairs. We offer a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books for all ages, as well as magazines and pamphlets, comic books and atlases, records, CDs and DVDs, games and puzzles.

A limited selection of our rarer, more valuable or collectable items is available for purchase from our online bookstore catalogue.

Out of the Shadows Walk

Posted in Building Community Resilience

World Suicide Prevention Day 10 September

Lifeline Canberra would like to invite the community to come together on World Suicide Prevention Day to walk Out of the Shadows and into the Light.

Out of the Shadows is a free community event held to remember people who have lost their lives to suicide. It also provides an opportunity to discuss suicide prevention openly, in a supportive environment.

The Canberra walk will be held on Monday, 10 September from 5.40am. We will gather on the steps of the Australian War Memorial and hear a tribute to those lost. As the sun rises, we will walk down Anzac Parade and back. If you will be interstate on the day of the walk, but would still like to attend one, a list of Out Of The Shadows walks can be found at this page.
